this afternoon when three house republicans slammed health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius for blaming problems with the rollout on the government shutdown. but the latest issue with the website wasn't political at all. it was another big technical problem over the weekend that only got fixed today. is it working or not? 27 days after it was supposed to be open for business, the healthcare.gov website crashed again over the weekend. it was up and running again on monday. the administration blames this latest problem on one of the 56 contractors for the project, a subsidiary of verizon called terremark which was responsible for website capacity issues. >> the healthcare.gov technical team continued troubleshooting the issue with the online creation account process. >> reporter: meanwhile, the administration had other pressing problems. a triple threat on capitol hill. republican chairman darrell issa and his house reform and oversight committee wanted a slew of documents related to obama care and the rollout by 5:00 p.m. today. that deadline came and went, but issa has more
that in turn made the website go down. we heard secretary sebelius say yesterday in the hearing that is not on us, it's on verizon. you have verizon respondents saying they asked for plan maintenance. the site when count for a long time this go round and this wasn't the first time it's happened. >> so it does make you wonder how secure the site is. there's a lot of financial information on there, right? so is it secure? should we be worried? >> absolutely. i think right now the conversation we've been having has been why is this site going down but the conversation we're really going to start having is what are the security flaws or vulnerabilities on this site, because you wanted to trust that a site built like this is very, very secure, but what we're beginning to see are security analysts going in and saying oh, hey, there's a vulnerability here and here. cnn money we actually put out an article showing that a string of vulnerabilities would enable someone to go in and potentially reset your password. they've been fixed but that's just the beginning of this. i've been speakin
that secretary sebelius made all those decisions to defer them. i think that was in large measure a decision made i suspect by the white house as they were navigating through an election at that point in time. and that was a political call they made and they're now making -- now having to deal with the consequence of that. >> that's a pretty serious blunder. if it's done for political reasons when this is the signature achievement of president obama, health care for everyone in the united states, something that then girls in washington have been working on for decades, they finally get it passed and you're saying for political reasons because of an election they were delaying certain critically important elements leading up to the release of this plan, is that what you're saying? >> wolf, they will have to answer as to why those regulations weren't issued. but i think it's clear they had three years to do it. there was a period of time when nothing happened, at least nothing publicly happened. and those regulations -- decisions were made not to issue them and i think at the very root of this prob
for joining us. >> thanks, wolf. >>> just ahead, ready and waiting for kathleen sebelius, the republican congressman, fred upton. he chairs the panel that will grill the health and human services secretary on the obama care rollout tomorrow morning. we will get a preview. we have new evidence the obama care website was headed for syria's problems before its rollout. that's coming up in our situation room special report. obama care under fire. tweet us. use the hash tag, simply. ♪ tracks! they connect the factories built along the lines. and that means jobs, lots of people, making lots and lots of things. let's get your business rolling now, everybody sing. ♪ norfolk southern what's your function? ♪ ♪ helping this big country move ahead as one ♪ ♪ norfolk southern how's that function? ♪ i'm on expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for, because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the mo
. just after kathleen sebelius praised it as a model of sufficiency and security. that malfunction was fixed, but it is the tip of the proverbial iceberg and no one is taking responsibility for all that has gone wrong with the website. the question is -- and there must be an answer to this at some point -- where does the buck stop? it would seem like an easy question to answer. but how did it go so wrong sno. >> it would seem that way. we know this. the obama care girl who was on the cover here, smiling young woman, has disappeared. we don't know why. maybe she's not smiling amid all these problems, but it's just as well. because too many people were involved with this from the start. that's what we're learning. how did this go so wrong? in a perfect world most agree that it should have gone like this. president obama would have outlined some goals. kathleen sebelius would come up with a plan to reach those goals. an agency, in this case, the centers for medicaid and medicare centers would hire computer services to make it happen. and voila, there is your fully functioning website.
and human services secretary kathleen sebelius say the president didn't know anything about the website problems? and why were the warnings ignored? what are you learning about this report? about what they knew? >> the main contractor, the key contractor issued this confidential report to the agency overseeing the health care.gov rollout. it warnld of a number of open risks and issues for the health care.gov webb. the report gave the highest priority to things in plain language like we don't have access to monitoring tools, not enough time to schedule or conduct adequate performance testing and hub services are enter mittenly unavailable. short for the sights not sim. they were saying back in september they were putting a team in place to alert whenever the hub go down. >> now, obviously the question is, did people in the white house know the significance of that? but what is the administration saying? kathleen sebelius has been so adamant that the president didn't know anything. what does this mean about that and why were the warnings ignored? >> they did issue a very brief, almost ter

"news room" with brooke baldwin continues right now. >> wolf, thank you. great to be with you. i'm brooke baldwin. we continue here today. the world wants answers. right now this congressional hearing is underway. when you look at some of these pictures, this wasn't too long ago, these protesters here in the back of this room. they're holding up signs as the head of the nsa and the president's top intelligence chief are both there to testify as anger and suspicion grow over accusations of widespread u.s. spying. the worst of it, tapping the phones of u.s. allies. >> we, all of us in the intelligence community, are very much aware that the recent unauthorized disclosures have raised concerns that you've alluded to, both here in congress and across the nation, about our intelligence activities. we know the public wants to understand how its inte

crashed the site yesterday. just after kathleen sebelius praised the very same component that crashed as a model of efficiency and security. ouch. that malfunction was fixed, but it is the tip of the proverbial iceberg and no one is taking responsibility for all that has gone wrong with the website. the question is -- and there must be an answer to this at some point -- where does the buck stop? tom forman has been trying to figure it all out. it would seem like an easy question to answer. but it isn't. but how did it go so wrong? >> it would seem that way. we know this. the obama care girl who was on the cover here, smiling young woman who embraced the federal website, has disappeared. we don't know why. maybe she's not smiling amid all these problems, but it's just as well. because too many people were involved with this from the start. that's what we're learning. how did this go so wrong? in a perfect world most agree that it should have gone like this. the white house, president obama, would establish and outlined some goals. the department of health and human services would come
? probably the one occupied by health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. she was grilled wednesday by a house committee in a hearing that occasionally was just downright weird. >> toto, we're not in kansas anymore. >> i was in the third grade there, and i thought i saw you on a tricyle. >> ever used a coupon? >> four pinocchios. >> the sky is falling. >> don't do this to me. >> none of that is about getting health care. that's about getting re-elected and some kind of political parlor game in washington. there's a reason it got to wacky because you can't reduce something as complicated of the affordable care act to a bumper sticker. the president has even tried to do this. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. >> as we saw, that's turning out to not be true. for some americans, especially those who buy on the individual market. so the president is getting a bit more specific lately. >> if you had one of these substandard plans before the affordable care act became law, and you really like that plan, you are able to kee
pretty tense exchanges i'd call them on capitol hill when hhs secretary kathleen sebelius testified before congress. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov. so, let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable to you for fixing these problems. and i'm committed to earning your confidence back by fixing the site. >> you know, as the secretary and her team are working to fix the site as you heard you are left some questions about obama care and here to answer them is nancy metcalf from "consumer reports," thank you for being here. >> my pleasure. >> the big thing was people were told you can't keep your policy, you have to buy a new policy that might be more expensive, it might cover more but it's more expensive. and they don't -- are these people being asked to buy something that they don't need? what would you tell those folks? >> well, the reason those policies are being canceled is because they don't -- they're not adequate to the rules of the new law, and the thing that's not adequate about them i
is mounting against health and human services secretary kathlene sebelius as yet another setback hits the obama care website. its data center crashed sunday, stopping enrollment in all 50 states, cnn's athena jones is following the development in the white house this morning. have they figured out what went wrong here? >> good morning, kate, it's a website crash. i can tell you the man that the president put in charge of fixing health care, says it will be running smoothly by the end of november. fought befo not before another major meltdown because of this crash. absolutely no one was able to sign up for health care. another major stumble for the problem riddled website healthcare.gov. >> it's better today than it was on october 1st, but it's a long way from perfect. >> visitors to the site late sunday couldn't apply for health care coverage a. vendor for verizon, the website data services hub quote experienced a failure in a networking component that component connects healthcare.gov to determine eligible. the company says they're working to fix the problem. >> what you are seeing h
and this is obviously a question with kathleen sebelius. it is potentially more of a question with general alexander but the confluence of the two, i think makes this a bigger and more glaring issue for sort of the president's credibility. >> right. unfortunate, but also coincidental, right? i don't think we connect these two things and say this president wants to be in the dark about things. this president is so hands off. >> i'm just trying to imagine what charles would say about this confluence if george w. bush were in the white house. >> i think that these two things are actually, in fact, separate things. i think that -- first, they are completely different agencies and time lines. the nsa thing has been happening over a very long period of time. the website issues happen over a much shorter period of time when they were rolling it out, the government was shut down. the president was distracted by the idea of trying not letting the country going into default. >> oh, h -- >> come on, ross. but they are separate things but you are right you take your lumps. they do happen at the same time and pe
and human services secretary kathleen sebelius missed an extended deadline set by house committee to turn over documents about the healthcare.gov website and could trigger a congressional subpoena from republicans. >>> lindsey graham is trying to hold up all nominations for federal positions until the outpost in benghazi appear in congress. they say they sent someone there on the night of the attack. the white house is accusing republicans of playing politics with the issue. >>> secretary of state john kerry may travel to egypt in the coming weeks we hear. it would be his first trip there since president mohammed morsi was ousted by the military last summer. ties between washington and cairo have been strained since then. the u.s. recently withholding $260 million in cash aid and military weapons pending egypt's progress on democracy and on human rights. >>> they are picking up the pieces this morning after one of the most powerful storms in years, which has battered great britain and western europe. at least 13 people were killed. pretty amazing pictures here. hundreds of thousands left
's not going to fail. >> should sebelius go? should somebody carry the can for the fact that the system has started so badly? >> you know, i'm not a big fan of scapegoating. >> ever? >> well, no -- well, yeah, ever if it's actually scapegoating. >> are you a fan of accountability -- >> of course. >> where someone is in charge of it? >> there is a difference between accountability and scapegoating. right in the middle of it, i think it counterproductive to get rid of person who has been there all along and knows the details, why get rid of her now to make the situation worse? >> but when she says we'll bring in the a team, i'm like hang on a second, this is the president's great initiative. >> i know. >> where was the a team before? >> there is no defense to that. i would never defend him on that. that's so ridiculous and frustrating because again, this was his great signature achievement. >> why didn't he know a month before when all these warning signs apparently were there that it wasn't ready. >> right. >> it was failing. is it really credible that the president's whose legacy may be bas

the site crashed two times this week. kathleen sebelius said the website has cost $174 million so far and more probably to fix it. >>> starting today $5 billion is cut from the food stamp program. that means less grocery money for millions. the cuts will vary by family but this is typically a family of four getting 668 a month would lose about $36. food stamp benefits were raised during the recession and temporary increase to the program and that expires today. in 2007, 26 million people were using snap as they call it, supplemental food benefits and compared that to almost 48 million now. 15% of the american population is using government assistance to help feed their family. $36 a month is going to hurt some people. people who work for food banks are upset about these cuts. others say this was meant to be a temporary measure and that temporary measure is now over. you'll hear more about that. >>> are you -- when you fly, are you going to be irritating with your devices now you're able to use them or a good citizen? >> i'm always a good citizen. >> i'm so glad nobody can chat on thei
